After watching this spec spot for Quiznos which compares the chain's subs to Subway's, we never want to eat at either establishment ever again. The thought that we'd be eating cbubbies for lunch just, well disgusts us. We get the analogy though. That much is clear. Quiznos does, indeed, have more meat which, um, will make you more fat which, um, makes using fat people to depict sandwiches a perfect sound creative strategy.

"I woke up with a condom still inside me."
"You shouldn't take Plan B if you're already pregnant becasue that would be retarded."
"Does it get you high if you snort it?"

As Norris writes on her site, "American Able intends to, through spoof, reveal the ways in which women with disabilities are invisibilized in advertising and mass media."
